Eric Bassier, director of product marketing for Quantum's Data
Protection Group. "The Scalar i6000 award validates the acquisition
and operational cost advantages, as well as the high availability,
that IT departments can expect from our industry-leading intelligent
tape libraries." 
As data continues to grow and provide greater strategic value,
Quantum's Scalar(R) family provides highly reliable and
cost-effective long-term data storage and large-scale archiving,
including in tiered environments behind disk-based deduplication and
object storage systems. Scalar libraries scales from terabytes to
more than 75 petabytes and incorporate Quantum's unique iLayer(TM)
proactive monitoring and intelligent diagnostic capabilities for
optimal efficiency. With EDLM, the company's policy-based tape data
integrity checking feature, the libraries also deliver more reliable
data retention over a longer period. In addition, Quantum's new High
Density Expansion Module (HDEM) for the Scalar i6000 provides the
highest storage density in its class, saving valuable floor space. 
"The Scalar i6000 offers high density to reduce its data center
footprint, and Quantum's continued enhancements have delivered higher
availability, even greater data integrity and advanced active archive
features," noted Knox McCormac, director of operations with Optimus.
"As a result the Scalar i6000 is a critical component in our data
protection and archive solution."
